Winter on the Homefront
January 29, 2011
This is a brief break in our vacation gardening photos just to let you know that life continues in the garden even during the winter. Last year we did not get the snowfall we needed during the winter and as expected the growing season was not as good as it could have been. This year has been a bit different. While we were away during most of the month of December we had a couple of snowstorms with good accumulation. We arrived home the end of the first week in January. Since then we have had a few more snowstorms with good accumulation. This is very promising as to a good growing season to come!
My gosh, we woke to the most beautiful winter wonderland this morning! We received about 11 cm over night coating the grounds in sparkling white and glistening diamonds. It continued with a fine, misty snow most of the day. It looks like it will be a very good growing season if this keeps up!
